Donny has been a singer / songwriter of renown for over 30 years in Texas. 
Born in October, 1963, he was playing guitar by the age of 9, and soon 
thereafter began writing his own rock, blues, and contemporary compositions. 
Donny’s first band (in 1980) also featured neighborhood friends Terry Glaze 
and Tommy Bradford, and, after meeting a young Vince and Darrel Abbott, soon 
morphed into the first incarnation of the Grammy Award nominated heavy metal 
band Pantera. After leaving Pantera in 1981, Donny joined Dallas / Ft. Worth 
heavy metal pioneers Boss Tweed, and toured the U.S. almost nonstop for the 
next several years. In 1986, Donny formed the band Assassin, who enjoyed 
regional support from radio stations such as Z-Rock and Q102 for their 
self-titled debut album. In 1994, Donny moved to the East Texas region 
and was recruited into the band U.S Lords, and played with guitarist 
Donnie Pendleton for the first time. The band enjoyed regional success, 
playing numerous festivals and high profile gigs with bands as diverse 
as The Flies, The Animals (featuring Eric Burden), and Quiet Riot. After 
moving back to Dallas in 2002, Donny concentrated his efforts on writing 
music, and collaborating with other local music projects. When The Alan Fox Band 
offered him a spot in 2011, Donny jumped at the opportunity, where he is 
currently lead singer and front man. The Alan Fox Band is currently working 
on the follow up to their first album, "JuJu Ear Rub".
Donny Hart joined AFB Nov. 2011
